Publisher's Description

Simple Prayer, Dramatic Life-Change

It’s a timeless prayer that produces timely results! Bruce Wilkinson takes readers to 1 Chronicles 4:10 to discover how they can release God’s miraculous power and experience the blessings God longs to give each of us. The life of Jabez, one of the Bible’s most overlooked heroes of the faith, bursts from unbroken pages of genealogies in an audacious, fourpart prayer that brings him an extraordinary measure of divine favor, anointing, and protection. Readers who commit to offering the same prayer on a regular basis will find themselves extravagantly blessed by God, and agents of His miraculous power, in everyday life.

    BTW Yahweh our Elohim is not Christian. Christian is now defined as to be Christ Like. How can Yahweh be like Christ when really Christ is trying to be like Him? Further, the scriptures state that there are seven churches (i.e. religions). He is not a respector of persons. Yahweh wants those who are willing to sacrifice their desires to please Him. Yashuah the Messiah did not call himself a Christian and you probably cannot find it in the scriptures because we were called saints, brothers, sons and other familial terms of endearment. The word Christian was made up well after the death of the messiah. It came from the word cretins which means ignorant ones or idiots. It was to make fun of beleivers. I prefer to be called saint. Galatians 5:22 will help all get through.

    Should be of interest to a Christian reader to note that the author has denied that God is Christian. A principal I once worked with at a Christian school would use this book for devotions at times....I guess she didn't know.

    Message is always skewed when theology is off.

    This book can change how you view God, how you value yourself, and how you pray. Yes, it can change your life!

    Short enough to read in one sitting but substantial enough to challenge you to go beyond your comfort zone, it teaches Bible-based principles that are emphasized by anecdotes that will make it stick to your heart.

    I will never tire of reading this book. It is one of my all-time favorites - as Bruce Wilkinson is an excellent teacher.

    The one thing that I would recommend before picking up this book is to seek God first. The Bible says that the prayer of a righteous man avails much. And to have the righteousness that Jabez so obviously had above all the others that God would favor him...can be had through the salvation that is in Christ alone. That, I believe, is the greatest blessing - which the author himself declares. Read the excerpt. Enjoy the ride!

    I purchased prayer of Jabez several years ago and I use this

    prayer in my daily prayers and meditation. I actually purchased this book to give to a friend and I have given this book away to friends before. Excellant reading and gives a lot

    of room for thought.

    An Old Testament man, named Jabez, is mentioned but briefly in a long listing of names in I Chronicles 4. But there is a pause at his name before the next name of a long lineage is mentioned, and that pause provides the reader with a small window into one man and the powerful prayer he prayed. It is this pause that Wilkerson's 'Prayer of Jabez' expounds upon.

    Jabez prayed a prayer that was so significant that the writer of I Chronicles recorded it. The prayer is a short and concise request to God. Comprising of four parts (to be blessed, for enlarged boundaries, for God's Hand to be with him, and to be kept from evil) it is also recorded in the passage that God answered Jabez's prayer. The prayer of Jabez is a treasure...a showcase flower among the flowers of a field.

    Wilkerson examines the four parts of the prayer and encourages the reader to make the prayer their own prayer, too. So far so good. But then Wilkerson provides a personal example of how praying Jabez's prayer brought about great results in his 'ministry'. Wilkerson and his youth group went on a 'mission's trip' to the beaches of Long Island. There they try to wins souls by performing 'gospel magic' and they claim an x number of souls for Christ for that day. Wilkerson's credibilty with me is gone. Nothing he says in the remainder of the book interests me.

    Souls are not numbers, people are not numbers, the impact of one's ministry is not significant because of the numbers they bring in. The paradigm Wilkerson represents is incorrect. The prayer that Jabez prayed is not a formula one plugs in to get desired results. Wilkerson encourages the reader to prayer the prayer for 30 days and expect to see amazing reults...stroke the belly of the buddha and get what you want.

    From how i read that short passage in I Chronicles 4, Jabez prayed this pray only once, but what it showed was that his heart was desiring God's best and God's protection. Such was the man's character and his pilgrim walk. God answered his prayer because He saw his heart.
